Visiting Lagos in the Algarve on a very hot, still day we explored the Forte da Ponta de Bandeira. Built in the 17th century to protect the harbour from pirates, its cool white stone rooms and attractive chapel contrast strongly with the sunny beach alongside.
As Lagos was the starting point for so many voyages of discovery there is an exhibition of models of the ships used by the early sailors.
But the most striking part of our visit was seeing the beautiful sculptures of Jose Maria S Pereira which move with the wind.
